Blue Ribbon was the original innovator of the signature Birdcage® submersible level sensor design, now an industry standard.
The Model BC001 Birdcage Series is a family of high-reliability submersible level transmitters. Their all 316 stainless steel construction provides years of trouble-free service life within harsh environments. An integral 3” sensing diaphragm eliminates process media clogging, a condition to which smaller level monitoring products are typically prone. This design also allows the Birdcage to read true level depth within foam environments, an accuracy advantage over radar and ultrasonic technology types. A protective stand-off baffle plate further eliminates the inherent risks of effluent sensor damage, particularly in applications where particulate matter may be present.
The dual sealed cable entry of the Birdcage Series is expressly designed to prevent leakage. Its Hytrel cable with integral vent is also impervious to many of the chemicals found in effluent waste. Units are offered with standard surge protection, helping to eliminate the risks of field failures caused by lightning or voltage spikes. The Model BC001 also features an intrinsically safe option for continued reliability within hazardous locations.
